I just fell in love with a picture of a dandelion from the Caucasus, Taraxacum haemanthum, in this picture from page 76 of the Scottish Rock Garden Club journal “The Rock Garden” (Jan 2014). For a minute I thought the leaves at the front belonged to the dandelion, but they don’t. Just hope it really is that orange!
I hadn’t planned any more talks this year, but I was tempted and have accepted to give a talk at the Walled Kitchen Gardens Network 2015 Forum at the Mansion and Kitchen Garden at Croome Court in Worcestershire, UK on Saturday 3rd October! The participants will be walled kitchen garden gardeners!
I will be among kindred spirits, having my own walled garden (my ex- greenhouse) ;)
Engelsk: Yesterday morning my good friend, fellow forager and Norway’s fermentation queen Rita Amundsen had an appearance on Norwegian radio. She cooks dandinoodles with blue cheese from Hitra which are served up for the leader of the Norwegian Green Party, Rasmus Hansson. I wish we could have seen it as eating the same dandinoodle it almost ends in a kiss! The main part starts at about 1hr 28 mins in! The picture is from my talk in Oslo on Monday and I mentioned that Rita was on the radio in the morning!
Norsk: I går morges hadde min gode venn, sanker og Norges fermenterings-dronning, Rita Amundsen, en opptreden på norsk radio. Hun kokkelkerer det jeg kaller løvenudler med blåmuggost fra Hitra og det hele nesten ender opp i en kyss med Rasmus Hansson, leder av de Grønne! Jeg skulle ønske vi kunne ha sett bilder! Hovedinnslaget starter på ca 1t 28 min i! Dette bildet er fra mitt foredrag i Oslo mandag kveld!
